  1. The Heavy Weapons Qualification equips soldiers with the knowledge to operate high-impact weapons systems found in the Weapons Squad (1-4) including the FGM-148 Javelin, FIM-92F Stinger, M3 MAAWS, and the M240B. This course will cover the basics on how to use the weapons, what ammunition should be used, and how to operate them safely and effectively.
